American Indian Culture Project

Student Name: _____________________ Presentation Day: Thurs., October 5th, 2017

Region: ______________________ Cultural Item: ___________________

Parents,

We have been studying the different regions of Native Americans that occupied the United States for the past month in Social Studies. These regions include: The Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, Southwest, Plains, and Arctic Regions. We have studied what those Native Americans ate, wore, and what they used for shelter. We have also discussed some of the ways their culture has, and continues to influence the United States today through music, art, fashion, and more! Your child has been assigned a cultural item from a specific region. They are in charge of creating a replica artifact to present and share with the class. Accompanied with their artifact, students must write a paragraph that they will read to the class that explains which region created their item, why, and how it was used. The artifact can be a 3D model, an “imitation” model (for example, using Popsicle sticks or cardboard instead of wood), or drawn. We encourage creativity and look forward to seeing some great artifacts!! But, please keep in mind that your child is in charge of carrying their project back and forth from school.

 

Attached is some brief information about their assigned artifact as well as the rubric for how students will be graded.
